Apsara Beachfront Resort & Villa

Khao Lak, Thailand

The hotel

You could be forgiven for thinking the Apsara is only for water babies, with its beachfront setting, infinity swimming pool, villa pool, two kids' pools, pool villa upgrades, water slide and of course, the obligatory Jacuzzi. But there’s more to the Apsara than sun, sea and sand. Set in unspoilt tropical greenery, along Pakarang Beach, this All Inclusive haven offers a range of drinks and things to do. There’s the Thai cookery classes, Thai boxing, spa treatments, bike rental and kayaking to name but a few!

We arrived in a spacious, inviting with great sea - facing room and one of the most comfortable bed I ever had!, However, it would be nice if there’s a glass or wall that separates the bathroom from sleeping area. The resort is quite spread out and covered with lush green trees, giving a feeling of being in the nature. The beach is beautiful,… Read more
We arrived in a spacious, inviting with great sea - facing room and one of the most comfortable bed I ever had!, However, it would be nice if there’s a glass or wall that separates the bathroom from sleeping area. The resort is quite spread out and covered with lush green trees, giving a feeling of being in the nature. The beach is beautiful, long, flat and calm. Had dinner at The Zeus restaurant, the food, service and ambiance was perfect. Breakfast buffet is impressive with great atmosphere too. The resort is maintaining the new norms very effectively, making the place very safe and hygienic. The staffs are polite, attentive and very efficient especially Rungnapa, Mark and Joven. Do not hesitate to stay, you will be in paradise! Read less

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here, the 1st time was 5 years ago. We have never returned to the same place before but this was so perfect, we had to go again and we were not disappointed. For some reason though (middle of January) there was an abundance of mosquitoes, get some Sketolene mosi spray and green balm from the little stall that comes to the hotel some nights, very, very good. The rooms have got a bit tired but still nice. The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to help if they can. Special mentions to Noona, she was brilliant (tell her David eats everything and she will remember us) We miss her. Also thanks to Tik, Fon (Ila Lounge) Mike and Fahmi (restaurant bar) Peuva and Pon (restaurant). All the reception staff were very nice too, any problems, just ask and they will help you. One couple on arrival could not find a sunbed, so they asked reception and immediately they put 2 more beds out for them, nothing is too much trouble. We had dinner at the Napolai Restaurant and also Zeus, no complaints from either. The only person who could have spoilt the holiday for many people if they allowed it to, was the Tui rep Suzi, she upset quite a few guests, both from here and other hotels. She has a severely abrupt attitude and seriously needs retraining in Customer Relations! On the Eco trip that we booked with her, she did not mention to anyone that the ladies needed to take something to cover their knees and shoulders as we were visiting a temple, (which we also weren't told about) this apart from other issues that guests had with her! If we or anyone spoke to her outside of her office she was quite rude! There are quite a few bars outside of the complex, not too far to walk but you can always get a taxi as these are cheap. We booked a taxi from the hotel entrance lady (Rakay Travel) to Moo Moo's Lady boy show and she booked a table for us in Moo Moo's. This is in Bnang Nga and close to the market. It was a great night and we thoroughly enjoyed it, all 6 of us. The men in our party went to the Naval Golf Course by taxi and the ladies went to the Turtle Sanctuary which is virtually next door. Worth a visit, beautiful cheap coffees as well. We went on a Tui Eco tour which was very good. 1st we went to a food market in Pnang Nga (YUK), then to the elephant sanctuary, where we fed, and washed the elephants. Also went to James Bond Island, we were disappointed with the island itself (very commercial) but the rest of the tour was amazing. Canoe ride, raft ride and boat ride. Lunch afterwards. Would definitely go here again and again, love it Read less
